Abstract

Objective : Infravesical obstruction can occur after surgical cure for urinary stress incontinence (USI). Apart from palliative treatments with limited effects, this iatrogenic complication can be corrected by complete urethrolysis. The various indications and techniques of this surgery are presented. Method : Urethrolysis is designed to release the urethra and bladder neck and can be performed via a transvaginal or retropubic approach. Some authors then recommend resuspension of the bladder neck, while others use a Martius or omentum flap to reduce the risk of restenosis. Results : The success of urethrolysis is measured by the return of normal micturition with complete disappearance of the irritating and/or obstructive symptoms. The sucess rate for the transvaginal procedure varies from 65% to 92% according to different teams, while the success rate via an abdominal incision was 93% in one series. Conclusion : Urethrolysis is a difficult surgical technique, whose long-term results have not yet been precisely determined. The transvaginal route is associated with a low morbidity and remains our personal preference to release the obstructed urethra after operation for USI.
